I am using Window 7 Ultimate and Google File Stream. Supposedly it doesn't need any local space, all the files are on the cloud, right? But why it need sync and while it is doing so, it downloads lots of file to local (though I don't know where the are going to get stored on my local drive). Any my local drive space is around critical now the it seem taking forever copying large google file folders to local disc drives. Right now it stuck at "downloading .."  See:

See I am not doing anything.. why "downloading" needs to be part of "syncing"
process?  Apparently it stuck here.. never really going to finish the alleged "donwloading"
How can I make the Google File Stream to appear faster, if at all it does appear 10mins later every time?
